Joe Camilleri is one of the most committed and successful musicians this country has ever produced – a man who loves and lives music. Over the years, other greats have admired the Camilleri’s songwriting. Elvis Costello and John Denver are just two who have recorded cover versions of Joe’s work.
Leader of two of Australia’s most successful bands, Jo Jo Zep and The Falcons and The Black Sorrows, Joe’s music has become part of Australian music culture. In 1975 Joe formed Jo Jo Zep and The Falcons, a band who swung from R’n’B to reggae, power pop and ska, and over a period of 8 years Jo Jo Zep and The Falcons toured the country relentlessly to became one of Australia’s finest live outfits. In the early ‘80s Camilleri and friends started up a new band, The Black Sorrows, who have released 18 albums and sold over two million albums world-wide, and continue to be one of Australia’s most successful touring bands.
Recently named a "living legend” by Rolling Stone (Jan 2017), Joe Camilleri continues to thrill audiences with the passionate live performances and the artistry that he brings to every song he touches. There have been multi-platinum albums and sales of over two million records worldwide. The Black Sorrows, in one form or another haven’t stopped recording or performing since Joe pulled the thing together in 1983 – and he’s still playing 150 shows a year!
Here’s the newest track to be released from the most recent Black Sorrows latest album ‘Faithful Satellite.'
